Nintendo is getting ready to drop their fourth Nintendo Labo DIY Kit soon, with the Labo VR Kit scheduled to release next week. The Kit will come with its own games, as past Labo Kits have, but a couple of existing games will be gaining some VR compatibility that players can use their Labo VR Kits with as well.

Nintendo recently announced that the critically acclaimed games Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be gaining some VR compatibility soon that players can access with the Labo VR Kit. Super Mario Odyssey will be receiving three new VR-centric mini-missions in the Cap, Luncheon, and Seaside Kingdoms that will involve collecting Coins and and music notes. Meanwhile, Breath of the Wild won’t be receiving any new modes or missions, but the full game will become playable using the VR headset for those who want to immerse themselves in Link’s adventure even more.

These VR updates will become available for Super Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild starting on April 25. The Nintendo Labo VR Kit will be available across several sets, including the Starter Set and two Expansion Sets, as well as a complete set, all of which will become available on April 12.
